Perez Cruz is a family owned boutique winery located in the Alto Maipo. Their estate
covers 250 hectares of vines planted in one of the most sought after areas for
growing premium Cabernet Sauvignon. This red wine specialist also produces small
parcels of Syrah, Cot (Malbec), Carmenère and Petit Verdot. They also produce an
elegant cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc from Casablanca. From the first vintage in
2002, Andres Perez Cruz has seen the estate's speciality red wine amass an
impressive array of awards and gold medals. Their eco-friendly winery was built by
award winning architect Jose Cruz Ovalle, to fulfil the technical objective of fine wine
production. Its wooden roof and natural light allow thermal isolation and free air flow
circulation, making it one of the most unique wineries in the world..
2017 was generally a warm year, with a dry summer and high daily temperatures
providing excellent conditions for the ripening and maturation of the grapes. The
harvest produced average yields of high quality fruit, delivering good varietal typicity
and flavour concentration, balanced by an attractive acidity.
The vineyard is located in the north eastern area of the Casablanca Valley and is
situated on a slight, southerly incline. The Casablanca Valley is strongly influenced by
the cooling effects of the Humboldt Current, which flows up the west coast of Chile
from the Antarctic. Refreshing afternoon breezes from the Pacific Ocean create a
cool climate which is ideal for producing elegant white wines. This cool climate
results in a long ripening period, which encourages greater flavour complexity in the
grapes while retaining a balancing acidity. The soils are deep and fertile with an
abundance of clay within the soil profile, providing good water retention properties.
The vineyard is cultivated using sustainable practices.
The grapes were harvested when they had reached optimum maturity and
immediately pressed. The juice was separated from the solids using a cold static
decantation method, which lasted for 24 hours. The must was fermented at cool
temperatures of 12 to 13°C with selected yeasts for 20 days, in order to retain the
freshness and purity of fruit. The wine was cool-settled for three days, before being
gently prepared for bottling.
